Program Description


“In almost every case, we find that our seniors are kind, committed, responsible pet owners who would do anything to keep their pets happy and healthy, including giving them the food off their own plate or going without groceries, prescriptions and other basic necessities.”

“For seniors, who often live alone or in group facilities, pets help reduce stress and loneliness, improve mental health, lower blood pressure, increase social interaction and physical activity and help them remain mentally active.” -servingseniors.org
